Why work at St Clement Danes School?
We are delighted that you are considering applying for a role at St Clement Danes School and hope that you will take a moment to read our 'Information for Prospective Staff' which can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. We warmly invite you to apply for any job opportunities advertised on the Vacancies page and look forward to welcoming you to the school.
St Clement Danes was designated a National Teaching School by the National College for Teaching and Leadership in 2013. We lead the Herts & Bucks Teaching School Alliance, a group of educational organisations in the south of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire who collaborate to promote exceptional standards of education. This prestigious role sets us at the cutting edge of developments in teaching and learning and facilitates a close working relationship with the Department for Education. It also ensures that our staff have access to superb training opportunities to enable them to develop as practitioners, whatever their field. It is no accident that our staff retention figures are so healthy, nor that so many of our leadership roles are filled from current staff or those who choose to return to the school.
We were invited to apply to open a new school for South West Hertfordshire in 2013; Croxley Danes School opened in September 2017 and forms part of the St Clement Danes Multi-Academy Trust. Both schools are near the M25 and rail links into London, but situated close to beautiful countryside on the edge of the Chilterns.
For teachers looking for their first school, or one in which to grow their careers, a two-school setting which also provides the first-rate training of a Teaching School has to be one of the most exciting prospects in the South East of England.
